Katherine Booska

Katherine Booska is a PhD student in the United States field. She researches the intellectual and cultural histories of early twentieth-century conservative coteries, integrating methods from history, philosophy, theology, and critical literary studies. Her research asks how modern discomforts with time, scientific progress, faith, and sexuality are reflected in canonical and marginal texts. She wrote an honors thesis at the University of California, Berkeley on the relation between layered timescapes and Anglo-Catholic conversion in T.S. Eliot's love letters and poetry. In her work, Katherine is especially invested in questions about the writing of history, interdisciplinarity, the nature of texts, and historical time. 


Katherine is an American Religions in a Global Context Fellow at Stanford. She is an editorial staff member of UC Berkeley's Journal of Right-Wing Studies, and maintains an active interest in public scholarship.
